2004

I watched it with a pizza in my lap, a song in my heart, and a mic in my hand. Such a given, such an understood formality, it doesn’t even have it’s own, individual YouTubementation.

Well there are these two, but they seem kinda art house (still fun, though).

Toomer’s was wet and wild. Epic, even.

Grimsley prediction for Bama

1975 Plainsman editrix, Pulitzer nominee, biographer of Charles Schulz, Bo Jackson of Auburn journalism does her annual-ish thing on the Iron Bowl:

Hating Alabama is a worthy passion. It is part of my life, like longing for a white Christmas, or taking in stray dogs.

Buy her new book.

2003

The student section was a nightmare. I went nomad. I made it over to Dad and Zac right before I saw this. I couldn’t feel my legs. I looked to my right and saw Jesus. Everything was so bright.

2002

The last time we rode into Tuscaloosa on low expectations:

Kodi Burns = Tre Smith. If we don’t win by at least 10, I’ll be disappointed.

Seven (7!!!!) Quotes From “The Big Lebowski” That We Can Apply to This Season

By J.M. Comer

1. “The Dude abides.”

abide

The 2008 season has been one long test of the soul. What can we as Auburn fans do in this time of despair? Abide.

2. “Ah, f___ it.”

Auburn loses to Vandy. 14-13. Don’t dwell. This was probably the low point. No where to go but up.

3. “The bums will always lose.” OR “You’re out of your element.” OR “D’ya have to use s’many cuss words?”

franklin

Tony Franklin experiment = Season of DEATH.

4. “Yeah well, that’s just, ya know, like, your opinion, man.”

opinion

The blathering, blustery comments of our idiot brothers-in-arms continue. I took a look at our fellow Auburn fans on the al.com message boards (I know, I know, I’m torturing myself) and the biggest complaint from them over the past few weeks is that the team has quit. The coaches have quit. Get rid of Tubs. Well, it seems to me that most of these “fans” have quit believing, supporting, hoping and waiting. Spineless bandwagon cowards, all!

5. Message to Bobby Lowder and his trustee cronies: “Just because we’re bereaved doesn’t mean we’re saps!”

6. “Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear, well, he eats you.”

stranger

After seasons of great breaks (game-winning field goals, questionable calls going our way, etc.) for our Auburn Tigers, in 2008 it all comes back to bite us in the ass. Nothing seems to go our way.

7. “If you will it, it is no dream.”

armstrong

[Lance Armstrong knows the power of 7. This slot reserved for the next week's win over No. 1 ranked Alabama at Jordan-Hare West.]
